William Bee’s Wonderful World of Trains and Boats and Planes by Pavilion Books is a glorious celebration of amazing vehicles, visual delights and vibrant language that will entertain youngsters and grown-ups alike.
Each double spread is a treat to take in: a lively commentary from William Bee, accompanied by graphics with a retro feel. It feels like a manual, but one which ignites a child’s imagination with a delightfully vibrant text. With bold colours and plenty of technical details in the illustrations for young readers to find (including the cheeky traffic cones getting up to mischief – along with Sparky the dog) this is a fun and stimulating book to share. Endless conversations will come out of reading this book!
As a parent, I particularly like the adventurous and stimulating vocabulary. The book treats the child respectfully as a potential expert, which young vehicle enthusiasts will relish. My 15 year old would have adored this when he was about 3 or 4: It’s so much fun!
Early Years and KS1 teachers will love this as much as the kids. Following on from the success of William Bee’s Wonderful World of Trucks, this is a fine follow-up, and hopefully just the start of more to come!

Happy reading 🙂
